Parish President Chester Cedars has announced that, on an interim basis, Beth Guidry will assume the position of Director of Tourism for the Parish. Ms. Guidry previously served St. Martin Parish as the Executive Director of the St. Martin Parish Economic Development Authority (“SMEDA”) for 16 years. President Cedars noted that he worked closely with Ms. Guidry during her tenure with SMEDA, and her accomplishments in that role produced long-lasting assets for the Parish. He further observed, “Beth will again be an invaluable asset for the Parish while we recruit a permanent replacement for Dona Degatur. She has an acute understanding of the economic component of tourism.”
